As all Yo-kai Watch fans know, Yo-kai Watch 1 and Yo-kai Watch 4 for the Nintendo Switch have been out in Japan for quite some time and sadly as of late, no new news has been released for the localization of these games outside of Japan. So that's where this translation mod project comes into play!

This project is now finished and covers the entire full game! Down the road some more polishing changes will be released to continue to improve the game like swapping out the in game images/icons with translated counterparts, but that will require the Kuriimu2 program to be updated to handle the files needed and that may take some time. Once it is though, I'll most definitely be updating these last few things to put that final polishing touch on this Mod. I've also created a project Discord for anyone that would like to join and follow the latest updates on everything and even potentially help me with this project and other projects that I have going on.

Link to download the Mod's latest version 1.0.6:

https://drive.google.com/file/d/1_QtXBc6pvSUGYgZhj11z4S3r_xqqpeHY/view?usp=sharing

Installation:

(MAKE SURE YOU ARE USING THE OFFICIAL UPDATED GAME VERSION 1.0.2)


Installation of the project is very easy and straight forward. Everything is built around LayeredFS. So all you have to do is move the supplied "0100C0000CEEA000" folder to the corresponding directory listed below depending on what Firmware you are using.

ATMOSPHERE DIRECTORY:
Atmosphere/contents

SXOS DIRECTORY:
SXOS/titles 0100C0000CEEA000/romfs

Keep in mind when updating the mod to a newer released version it is always advisable to delete all the old files to avoid any possible errors or data corruption that might occur. Just delete the entire old folder and move the new versions folder in its place.

For general questions/early beta testing updates or to just join the project to potentially help yourself, follow the link below and join our Discord Server!

Thanks for your hard work !
How far are you in the translation ? 20 % ?

Yes I would say about 20-30% trying to get all the system text busted out along with all the code conversion from the 3DS version to the Switch version. It’s a work in progress piecing it all together blind but it’s starting to come together very well.

You could join the discord and help out with the project if you are skilled in that area of things, or you could also just join the discord and help support things motivational wise that would also be very much appreciated. It’s a large project but I’ve been busting it out myself pretty efficiently lately. Already got about 60-70hrs + worth of work put into this in just about a weeks time.

Hey there !! just passing by ,, hows the project doing so far ???
Best regards

Hoping to have another nice update dropping for you guys later tonight. Made very good progress on fixing all battle text and finished all events from chapter event 1 and 2 and halfway through chapter event 3. Just lack NPC text and finding a way to extract the games images/icons to take into a photo editing program and get them converter to English. I tried to just hard swap the 3DS images/icons with the Switch version and they weren’t compatible at all and glitched in game so its a work in progress.

Alright everyone the latest update for the mod has just been released and updated in the download link. Current version release is 0.0.3. I'll continue to post these message updates to go along with all future mod update releases.The project is currently up to Chapter 6 out of the games 11 main story chapters. NPC dialogue text and all in game images still need to be addressed and will be when I figure out the correct way to edit and get them changed. And that's about it as of right now, enjoy the mod.

Please ignore the last 0.0.3 build, the .fa file got corrupted with some 3DS —> Switch version testing that I was doing with file swaps. I didn't know until a member of our Discord brought it to my attention. I've now uploaded the new 0.0.4 build that fixes all of these issues and also adds a lot more to the game. As of now, the game is translated all the way up to Chapter 6 out of the 11 Main Story Chapters of the game. I hope you guys are enjoying this project as much as I am. More updates to come soon! Enjoy!

What is the update for this anythin after chapter 6?

The newest update fully completes the game. The only thing left to do is go back and overhaul the games side quests to fix a couple of bugs and then fully finish translating the battle text and then the game will be finished. Only thing after that in the future that needs to be done is extracting the games image files with Kuriimu2 when it gets updated to do so and then edit and replace those to English as well then the game will be 100% translated. But even in its current state without the image swaps, the game is very understandable and beyond enjoyable.
